Los Angeles Ethics Commission to Review Proposed Ban on Developer Contributions
The Los Angeles Ethics Commission announced it will be taking another look at a proposal to ban certain developer contributions to elected officials and candidates after Los Angeles City Council members revived the idea.
Six council-members reintroduced the new motion last week, with Council President Herb Wesson seconding it.
The motion prohibits developers from making political contributions to city elected officials or candidates from the date of application for the property is filed until 12 months following the final resolution of the application.
The Ethics Commission also announced it could include restrictions on nonindividual entity contributors and payments made by third parties at the behest of elected officials.
